Jwan escaped the war in Syria and came to Turkey. In the daytime he is a slopworker. In his remaining time he writes movie scripts. With an old camera in his hand, he talks to the people coming from Syria and points his camera at them. People share their dramas, disappointments, hopes, and despair with Jwan. While people are talking to him, Jwan is actually talking to us.
